Rihanna, Kate Moss, and More Memorable Dresses from the CFDA Fashion Awards

CFDA Awards

Since their inception in 1984, the CFDA Fashion Awards have positioned themselves as a playground, red carpet-wise, for models, actors, musicians, and designers. Honorees and nominees roll in with their fans — Liya Kebede for Proenza Schouler, Anna Ewers for Alexander Wang, Binx Walton for Shayne Oliver — showing off their designs, while designated icons like Rihanna and Iman dress to prove that they’re worthy of the title. Each year, the CFDA awards offer up a pretty busy carpet featuring actors like Rooney Mara and Claire Danes, the whole host of original supers, and, of course, the occasional Beyoncé sighting. See the best looks from the CFDA Fashion Awards red carpet over the years, here.
